ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Located in downtown St. Petersburg, The Dalí Museum serves as one of the best art museums in Florida.

The architecture of the building stands out most with its enigma dome, which is made up of 1,062 triangular pieces of glass, stands 75 feet at its tallest point, a twenty-first century homage to Dalí’s museum in Spain.

Inside, the Museum houses another unique architectural feature - a helical staircase - recalling Dalí’s obsession with spirals and the “world beyond,” as well as his fascination with the double helical shape of the DNA molecule.

The museum is home to an unparalleled collection of over 2,400 Salvador Dalí works, including nearly 300 oil paintings, watercolors and drawings as well as more than 2,100 prints, photographs, posters, textiles and sculptures across more than 60,000 sq. ft.

This preeminent collection of Dalí‘s work is one of the most acclaimed collections of a single modern artist in the world, with artwork representing every moment and medium of his creative life.

The Dalí is the first and only museum in the Southeastern United States to be recognized internationally by the Michelin Guide with a three-star rating.

In addition to the extensive permanent collection of Dalí works, the Museum showcases frequent special exhibitions curated from top worldwide collections.

The Dalí stands as a cultural beacon in the Tampa Bay area and beyond. Regular Museum and community programming includes films, lectures, performances, social events and more for adults and families.
